This blog is intended as a bulletin board to show the quilts I've been making on my vintage and treadle sewing machines. My husband and I collect antique and vintage sewing machines and I use them to make all my quilts. Here are some of the results.

Jelly Roll Race Christmas Friends Quilt
A few weeks ago, three of us decided to make a Christmas jelly roll race quilt. We got together one morning with all three of our stashes of Christmas fabrics and cut off three strips; one for each of us. We ended up with 54 different strips. One of us left out the black prints strips and added a couple of blues but we basically used the same strips. Interesting how they all turn out differently :-). This was a really fun project to do with some friends. Great memories of fun times spent together and amazing how our stashes blend LOL. The 54 strips resulted in a quilt top that is approximately 62" x 74" which will make a great Christmas lap quilt.
